SignUpGenius Software


 

SignUpGenius is an online tool for volunteer organizing and event planning. The service provides nonprofit organizations, schools, businesses and groups with an alternative to “reply-all” emails, phone trees and paper sign ups, and helps visitors sign up for tasks online. SignUpGenius is suitable for groups regardless of their size or operating budget.

Users can choose from various theme templates, and SignUpGenius lets users customize online sign ups to schedule volunteers, fundraise, track volunteer tasks and more. At the same time, email reporting enables coordination by keeping event planners up-to-date on volunteer participation and event details.

Two types of accounts are available: Basic and Pro, which itself comes in three different levels. Pro account users have access to extra features, including custom themes, multiple administrators, no-ads sign ups, volunteer hour tracking/reporting, an email messaging center and more.

Signup Genius is the best tool I've found for organizing sign ups for our church. It's extremely easy to use and offers flexibility to use for different things such as events, volunteer scheduling, potluck, etc. I would highly recommend it.

Pros

Functionality hands down. Even someone with limited computer skills would be able to use it.

We use online sign-up sheets for a volunteer fire department with over 100 firefighters assigned to five different stations. Most of us have full-time jobs outside of being firefighters, so finding a way to coordinate activities in a fair and consistent way was time consuming and quite challenging. Online sign-up sheets from SignUpGenius streamlined our process, while making it very easy for our firefighters to use. We post a sign-up sheet electronically ,and it is instantly available to everyone. At the same time, one person can manage the sheets remotely, so it eliminated the need for paper sheets and multiple trips to stations to post, review, and collect those sheets.

Likes Least

What's not to like about the capabilities of this way of doing online sign-up sheets? The creators of Sign Up Genius built a product that takes a complicated process and makes it a smooth operation. It is so easy to use that there is seldom a need to ask for help. Then the friendly folks at Sign Up Genius are lightning fast to response on the rare occasions when you need help.

Recommendations

If you are looking for a way to simplify sign-up sheets, then you simply must take a look at SignUpGenius. There may be other providers of this service, but it would be a cold day in Minnesota before you will find one that stands up to the ease of use and functionality of SignUpGenius!

Sometimes have trouble with customizing the sign-ups but that could be user error. Mainly have to remember how to use the time slot customization. I think I've completed everything and it doesn't move to the next step.

One simple list that can be modified weekly for our events. One to the parent and one reply to us!Prior to utilizing we had a email chain for both our Pre-game meal & for our game night volunteers. This meant that our entire roster ( 60-80) players parents were notified and every parent got any "replies" from the request email. Ugggggggg. I think people avoided the emails because of the burden of reading and scrolling through the list to see who was supplying what!

I used the free version for about a year, and then I upgraded to Pro as I saw the need for the features. There is one feature in the next step up (More custom themes) that I would like to use, but right now I can't afford the upgrade,
